God’s Word for Today | “The Sighing of the Almighty” | Excerpt 261
All that is in this world is fast changing with the Almighty’s thoughts, under His eyes. Things mankind has never heard of can abruptly arrive. And yet, what mankind has always owned can unknowingly slip away. No one can fathom the Almighty’s whereabouts, and further, no one can feel the transcendence and greatness of the Almighty’s life power. His transcendence lies in how He can perceive what humans cannot. His greatness lies in how He is the One who is renounced by mankind yet saves mankind. He knows the meaning of life and death. Moreover, He knows the rules of living for mankind, whom He created. He is the basis for human existence and the Redeemer for mankind to resurrect again. He weighs down happy hearts with distress and lifts up sorrowful hearts with happiness. This is all for His work, and His plan.
Mankind, who left the supply of life from the Almighty, does not know why they exist, and yet fears death. There is no support, no help, but mankind is still reluctant to close their eyes, braving it all, drags out an ignoble existence in this world in bodies without the consciousness of souls. You live like such, with no hope; he exists like such, with no aim. There is only the Holy One in the legend who will come to save those who moan in suffering and long desperately for His arrival. This belief cannot be realized so far in the people who are unconscious. However, the people still yearn for it so. The Almighty has mercy on these people who suffer deeply. At the same time, He is fed up with these people who have no consciousness, because He has to wait too long for the answer from humans. He desires to seek, seek your heart and your spirit. He wants to bring you food and water and to awaken you, so you are no longer thirsty, no longer hungry. When you are weary and when you begin to feel the desolation of this world, do not be perplexed, do not cry. Almighty God, the Watcher, will embrace your arrival any time. He is watching by your side, waiting for you to turn back. He is waiting for the day your memory suddenly recovers: becoming conscious of the fact that you came from God, somehow and somewhere once lost, falling unconscious on the roadside, and then, unknowingly having a “father.” You further realize that the Almighty has been watching there, awaiting your return all along. He longs bitterly, waiting for a response without an answer. His watching is priceless and is for the heart and the spirit of humans. Perhaps this watching is indefinite, and perhaps this watching is at its end. But you should know exactly where your heart and spirit are now.
Excerpted from The Word Appears in the Flesh
God Is Seeking Your Heart and Your Spirit
Humanity’s strayed from the Almighty’s provision. They don’t know why they live, but still fear death. Without help or support, they still won’t close their eyes. They live an ignoble life, no sense of their own souls. You live without hope, like others, without aim. It’s said the Holy One will save those who suffer and long for His coming. This has never come true in the unconscious ones, but people yearn for it still. The Almighty has mercy for those who suffer deeply, and He’s fed up with them who lack consciousness. For He has to wait too long for man’s answer. He seeks your heart and spirit, He’ll give you food and water, awaken your heart and spirit, quench your thirst and hunger.
When you feel the world’s cold or you’re weary, don’t cry or be lost. Almighty God, the Watcher, will embrace your return. He watches by your side, waits for you to turn around, hoping you’ll see that you came from God, that you lost direction, lost consciousness, acquiring a “father” at some unknown time, and the Almighty has always watched over you, waiting so long for your return. He’s been watching, waiting for a reply, but no answer. His standing watch is priceless, for the sake of man’s heart and spirit. He may watch forever, perhaps it’s at an end. But you should know now where your heart and spirit are. The Almighty has mercy for those who suffer deeply, and He’s fed up with them who lack consciousness. For He has to wait too long for man’s answer. He seeks your heart and spirit, He’ll give you food and water, awaken your heart and spirit, quench your thirst and hunger.
